6 pm, Thursday, May 28. Volcanic Theatre Pub, 70 SW Century Dr. $55.

The Healthcare Movie

Canadians are proud people, and this film rubs Americans faces in our still-lousy health care system. The narrative is structured around an American husband and a Canadian wife who are separated by their different health care plans. It is a side-by-side comparison and, in true haughty Canadian style, the film points out the many ways—financially, spiritually, culturally—that the Canadian system is so superior. It is a tough pill to swallow, but an important hour-long documentary that helps provide details, not just accusations, about the ways in which many Americans' health care falls short, and the many ways in which a Canadian system could be achieved. Kiefer Sutherland narrates the film, which gives a certain "24" urgency as well as a growing threat to the crisis.

6:30 pm, Tuesday, June 2. First Presbyterian Church, 230 NE 9th St. Free.
